    • I have 4 cats. Two I have had since they were babies, two I inherited 3 years ago. The newer cats are about 5 yrs old. One of them has found a spot to pee (not in the box) and just keeps going and going and going to it! I don’t have the room for one litterbox per cat. We have two giant boxes and scoop them every few days.  

      I have cleaned the carpet with Nature’s Miracle, Get Serious, a steam cleaner and covered the area with a amt. I moved their food out of the bathroom where the boxes are kept. But he still keeps going to that spot, and anything we put in the way to block the area, he just pees around it.

      Any advice? My husband is about to make this an outdoor cat.

    • Wow you really have done everything that I would have told you to do . Is the natures Miracle the Just for Cats one ? Im sure it is I just had to ask . Is the cat fixed ? Boy or girl ?

       If there is still even a tiny trace of a urine smell they will find it...and carpet is so hard to get cat urine out of . You can get a product to detur him form going there..that might work.  I have used Bitter End but I’m sure there are many products out there .
      I have cats 4 indoor and 2 outdoor cats myself and I have to clean the cat box twice a day .
      Good luck ~

    • I dunno, I’ve had lots of cats, they don’t do that. They have all been fixed. Put a litter box on top of the spot where the cat pees (?)

    • I don't have cats so I tend to Think Outside The Box  (just teasing).  

      I have bunnies and I don’t know if it is difference, they want a clean box and the right type of litter scent.

    • Try Fresh Step. Also get Greenies and give when it goes in box....I’m just brain storming hear, trying to crack you up!  Really, my cats love Greenies.

      HA HA CD!

    • Cassandra, I did not use the “cat” formula Nature’s Miracle, I just used the regular. I had some Hartz “keep off” spray, but that stuff was really lame.  

      We are going to get a third litter box and see what that does.  

      What is so ironic is-this is a cat I inherited when my mom died, and I feel too guilty to send him away. However, when I was growing up, we had a cat I loved and he sprayed so my parents got rid of him. Funny how life works, huh?

    • Lou, for my bunnies, they told me if I sprayed them, they would not be as dominant.  It is all about control from them.  They pee to claim that spot or item is theirs.

      Do you think it apply in this case?  M or F you have that is problematic?

    • You mean spay like neuter? They are all boys and they have all been fixed. the one with the “issue” is unhappy I’m sure having to share a house with three other cats and to be in the basement. I can’t let him roam because of the peeing.

    • Thanks for the orange suggestion, Bernadette. I’ll get something over the weekend. For tonight, I just mopped up what I could. He is peeing right at the door to the garage. In my old house, he peed right at the door to the kitchen. I think he’s giving a hint that he wants out. He was born outside, but I never have let my cats outside.

    • I can only tell you about my cat who did the same thing . My cat pooped on the floor all the time in the same spot. It turned out he hated his litter I switched from scoopable back to fresh step clayand he hasnt done it again, even if I dont scoop everyday! YAY
      As far as pee is concerned the smell is in the carpet pad and I pulled up my carpet because nothing ever worked

    • My neighbor has two male cats that she keeps outside. They just love my front porch.
      I use moth balls.....they will not harm the cats because I have two of my own. They have been nuetered and do not spray.
      The cats hate the smell of moth balls and will stay away from them.

    • just like keeping them from my plants, cayenne pepper in the area. They hate when it gets on their paws.

    • We will probably have to rip up that area of carpet. Luckily it’s at an entrance that should be tile or linoleum anyway. He is the only brat. The other three, including the brat’s brother, are fine.

      I am picking up the extra litterbox today.  

      Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!

    • Lou: Are you going to get that $299.99 potty?

      I don’t think my bunnies will even like that.

    • mztracy, the pepper sounds like a good idea. The moth balls really work, so maybe I will combine both.
